As Blake Bell makes the first start of his collegiate career today, he won’t have one of Oklahoma’s top threats in the running game lined up behind him.
Prior to kickoff, ESPN confirmed on its College GameDay show that Damien will not play this afternoon against Tulsa. The reason given for the abrupt move is that it was a coach’s decision.
There had been speculation leading up to that announcement that the running back would sit.
Williams is currently second on the team with 161 yards. Brennan Clay leads the Sooners with 213 yards.
